LOVE DIRECT ENERGY

(5 / 5)

  MY PLAN EXPIRED 2 MONTHS AGO AND I DID NOT REALIZE IT UNTIL I GOT A HUGE BILL. THEY HELPED ME GET A NEW RATE AND RE-BILLED AT THE LOWER RATE. I HAVE BEEN WITH THEM 11 YEARS AND WOULD NOT CHANGE DUE TO THEIR AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE!!

(5 / 5)

  I love this product. It is affordable and easy to track, thou a 2 day lag in account accountability of electricity used it is still as easy to track the usage at my rental property while it is waiting to be re-leased. It has helped me notice that extra lights were left on by mistake when I had not been in the house for about 2 days. A great tool for short term use but I can see using this for long term as well if I needed to monitor my electricity usage more closely.

Good electric company

(5 / 5)

  I have really appreciated the customer service at Power Express and the help that they provide. They are courteous and friendly. I find them willing to meet prices if you find a better rate but usually they are lower.

GREAT COMPANY

(5 / 5)

  Their customer service department is always helpful and I never have any billing problems. They always match or beat competitive pricing in order to keep me as a customer.

Great Company

(5 / 5)

  This is my second renewal and it couldn't have been easier, because they email you over a month before your expiration. We again renewed at a LOWER rate. I have never had a billing problem. And the referral program is awesome. Whether you use my referral code or find your own rate you won't be sorry if you switch.

GREAT COMPANY

(5 / 5)

  
I have been with Champion since May 2014. I have never had problems with billing or anyone in service.
The ordering process was very easy and I have renewed once. During renewal I was considering changing at which point my service rep worked up a spreadsheet for my comparison. She then gave me a competitive rate equal to new service. This never happens!! Champion takes care of their existing customers. Anytime I have a question I email my representative and she answers almost immediately.
And the referral plan is great too. But even without the referral plan or the best rate I wouldn't change because I like working with nice people.

HAPPY CUSTOMER

(5 / 5)

  I switched to Champion 10 months ago for a great introductory rate. No problems, no hidden fees and the best part is my renewal is lower. Yes this time of year the rates are still pretty low, but I found a company with a lower rate and they met it and then some. My past experience has been that only new customers get the lowest advertised rates, and the don't care if you transfer service.
But Champion does want to keep your business. Their customer service even sent me spreadsheets comparing yearly cost of different plans based on my prior usage. This company has the right attitude and I think the fact that they have way more positive reviews proves it.

Use this referral number SScarboro86062 for $25 off your first bill. Or you might get a better deal without it? Check it both ways.

Halved my Summer Electric Bill from Entergy!

(5 / 5)

  I signed on with TriEagle almost two years ago. First I did just the short trial, not wanting to get roped in by what sounded too good to be true. IT WAS TRUE! My first month with TriEagle was half of what I had been paying to Entergy. It has remained consistently lower than all of my past bills (5 years with Entergy). Nice people, too. Will be with TriEagle as long as they are there or I am here!

  I tried Pennywise because I wanted a short term acct. (selling house); the 6 mo. deal at 7.9 cents/kwh saved me a bundle! No issue with customer service; monthly bill is paid automatically. Starting service was a snap. The current 6 mo. deal is higher; may try mo.-to-mo.- it is dirt cheap!

Happy Resolution

(4.8 / 5)

  I was very upset to see that my double the amount that usually pay per month, I called Frontier Utilities and to my surprise they answered immediately, the customer service agent David was very attentive and kind, he explained me the charges for the past 3 invoices, let me tell you. I felt really bad when I realized that I forgot to send my payment, I usually let my husband pay this bill, but since he failed to make the payment I will be taking over this duty. David also told me that I can pay online and he guide me how to register online to avoid late fees. I am glad I call and I was able to resolve this issue immediately.

Satisfied After One Year, I Am Renewing Again

(4.8 / 5)

  I changed to Our Energy last year after being with Gexa for 10 years. I got tired of Gexa giving all the good deals to new customers and taking advantage of existing customers with higher rates every year. I am good at analyzing plans and understanding all the charges involved. I picked a plan that gave me a credit for usage over 999 kWh/month and by the end of my contract I had saved about $800 over the year. This time I am picking a Fixall Green 12 plan with a fixed kWH rate and no other fees. What I liked most is all their plans are the same rates, whether you are a new or existing customer. Plus they were the lowest rate after I checked several dozen plans. As for all these complaints involving people not getting their checks credited on time, I can't comment. I pay online using a credit card and have never had a late charge. The time to pay, from the time I get the bill, is indeed the shortest I have on any of my utilities, but I just stay on top of things by checking the website when it is the time of the month for the bill. When I first switched, I had to call a few times to make sure I got my first bill, but I do not find that to be unusual. I would recommend Our Energy for good service and following their contract.

Best electric company yet!

(4.6 / 5)

  I switched to Gexa last October and have never had an issue with them. I admit I have never had to call them so I can't really rate their customer service. They email me when my bill is ready to be viewed each month and I have no issues using the online bill pay service. Their rate was exceptionally low during my contract period. I only wish their rates were more competitive now so I could stay with them (I switch every 6 months). Highly recommend these guys!

Awesome prices- great service

(4.6 / 5)

  I have had a great experience with Champion Energy - the rates don't change, no hidden costs and friendly, prompt service. Compared to Reliant, it is like a breath of fresh air!
The only thing I do not like is being charged by a 3rd party to pay my bill online. I think if you want to pay your bill online, there should be no additional charge.

WoW! My electric bill dropped in half.

(4.5 / 5)

  Let me tell you about my Stream Energy experience in my opinion. When I was approached by a friend I thought to myself this is crazy, how much is 1 or two pennies going to save me a month, and is it worth the bother? Well, now I know, my bill dropped by $80.00 and it was prety simple to switch. The kilowatt usage was equal to the month before. Apples to apples. Thanks for the power to choose and deregulated energy.

  It is an electricity provider that is easy, fast and effective to deal with for my rental properties for the transitioning periods between tenants. Thanks Power Now!

Stay away from their "balanced billing" plan

(3.4 / 5)

  Overall, I would say I'm satisfied with the rates and the friendliness of their customer service. However, I got really hosed by their "balance billing" program. Most balanced billing programs adjust the monthly average as you go in a 6 month cycle (based on actual to-date usage) to make sure that at the end of the balanced billing cycle you are not left with a huge true up amount. It's of course based on the last year average but if anything significant has changed (in my case, a new pool), that can really throw things off. Bottom line is I ended up owing $1,000 at the end of my balanced billing 6 month cycle because of it. In fairness, Champion was willing to work with me so I could pay that over a period of 3 months and I even signed a contract stating those terms. However, I continued to get disconnection notices by mail and email. The agent - who was apologetic about the situation and very professional by the way - promised my service would not be disconnected. However, it's unnerving when you continue to get disconnect notices. Well, when I finally got the pink disconnect notice stating my power would be off in 1 week, well, I just went ahead and paid in full. The good: Competitive rates, friendly customer service. The bad: Balanced Billing does not adjust monthly based on actual usage to-date to ensure you are not stuck with a huge true up bill. Contract to pay true up amount over 3 months did not prevent disconnection notices from coming my way. Would recommend Champion Energy Services for their competitive rates and friendly customer service but RUN - DON'T WALK AWAY FROM "BALANCED BILLING" PLAN! :)

Meter Reads

(2.6 / 5)

  I have called a couple of times with regards to what I know are inaccurate meter charges. I had questions before the calls. However they charged me for usage of five dollars or more on days when I was either not there at all...or there with lights off and the were thermostat on 77...Then when you finally do call you get placed on hold for an eternity. Then you are told "oh the system is running slow and we can't download your info,and/or a supervisor will call you back which has yet to happen. I will call again and if I get no response take my business elsewhere. It's clearly not valued here

Rip Rate on Contract Expiration

(2.2 / 5)

  I kept expecting my bill to drop this winter as always. Finally calling in, I find I'm being charged 12.9 cents - a "Holding Rate" - becasue my contract expired 8 MONTHS ago and I did nothing about it. That means I have paid them several thousand $ more than what I could/should be paying - just because I did not initiate a new contract with them (they assure me a letter was sent, which I did not get or see - even though all other communication with them has been by email.)

I talked to several other providers and they said at contract end they would change a customer's rate to the PUBLISHED month-to-month rate. NOT TriEagle! They have a "special" non-published rate for loyal customers that fall out of contract!

So it works like this: Lets say I have a contract for $.09/KWH and I use about 5000 KW per month. That will cost me about $4320 for the 12 months. The next 6 months I was put on their super-duper special "Holding Rate" of 12.9 cents. So for the next 6 months I paid $3096 which is almost 3/4 of the entire first year's charges in just 6 months! If you now calculate my actual rate overall it works out to about 11.6 cents per KWH - not a bad margin for TriEagle! And a rate they NEVER could have landed my business with up front. (Currently Reliant's non-contract rate is 8.8 for customers with expired contracts)

And of course, you've already paid them so good luck with that! Customer service will just tell you over and over and over and over and over how "their" system works (for them, not me). It is after all my fault for depending on their emails for information impacting my account. Stupid me, I didn't see the paper notice that came in the mail - if indeed it did!

My kingdom for a company that is fair!! I am absolutely weary of credit card companies, cell phone companies, airlines, and power companies who structure their business practices to take ripping advantage of customers who are not watching every transaction as if business is some kind of shell game. Some say its my fault for not watching the account. I say I thought I was dealing with a company who was watching out for my interests. Instead they were watching out for a way to get me - when my back was turned - and they surely did.

I'm guessing TriEagle has a line in their ledger labeled "Sucker profits". Some of my money is there.

Talk to Reliant. If you don't renew on time, your rate goes to their PUBLISHED non-contract rate. That seems fair. Goodbye TRYing Eagle.

Do Not Use SW Power & Light

(1.6 / 5)

  My house was up for sale when my 2 year contract was soon to expire with SW Power & Light. I called weeks in advance of the contract expiration. I was mistakenly given the impression that it was a good idea to go to a month to month contract since I was moving soon. The customer service rep told me that my rate would go up a fraction of a cent. Instead my rate was doubled. During the period of time I repeatedly got calls from SW Power & Light Sales people who tried to get me to resign a new long term contract and NONE of them warned me that my rate would go up if I did not resign a long term contract (remember it doubled). I ended up switching to another company because they would not credit my bill for the amount they ripped me off.

Can't take it any more

(1.4 / 5)

  Initially, it was fine, prices are what I expected. They gave me a $200 credit which covered multiple months of charges. I was really happy and recommended their service to others. Then the bill began to climb. I paid what they said I owed, but there was always a balance forwarded. I asked for explanations. Now, they have my bill 240 due, with 174 due on May 7th. My personal audit showed they charged me twice in Feb, 2018. I sent them an email, explaining the over charge. I'm a senior citizen, healing over a bad car wreck , unemployed. I walk around my apt. in the dark, to save, wrapped up in a blanket to save, don't have a washer/dyer. Don't use the dishwasher, don't iron, bath once a week, keep the blinds closed. I swear, this feels like elder abuse. I need your help. It seems no conversation with their customer service with resolving problems never makes it to their accounting, so the price keeps ramping up
